point i kind of ducked down behind the water fountain and ran into the bank and they locked all the doors. >> this video was shot by christopher johns from his apartment. johns was able to distract the gunman which may have saved lives. we'll play the entire video for you up until the moment police fatally shot greene. >> there's a madman in the streets. oh, my god. you all right? there's a madman just shot people. he's shooting people at will. he's shooting people. he's shooting people at will. there's a madman. there's a madman. madman. hey you [ bleep ] madman. [ bleep ] hey.
shoot me. shoot me. come on. why don't you come up here. come on up here, buddy. come here. stop being -- come on up. let's do some [bleep] come on. i love you. i love you. i love you. i love you. shoot at me. i love you. i love you. i love you, man. kill me. i want to die. please kill me. i was just going to jump. i thought about you. i thought about a man shooting. you came. you came from god. you came from god. i don't have any, man.
i'm so sorry. >> call an ambulance. >> i'm so sorry. >> call an ambulance. >> i'm so sorry, man. i thought of you and you came and you shot people. i thought of you just now. take him out. take him out. take him out. take him out. take him out. [ gunfire ] >> yelling at a deranged gunman may seem to be a foolish thing and i asked christopher johns about that. he's the guy that shot that video. here's what he said. >> down there at point blank
range to the shooter they were going to get shot. they were helpless being avoid to get killed. me i'm four stories up. if i can direct the attention towards me, any gunshots that he would shoot at me, i would have an opportunity to get out of the way. i don't know. i just made a calculation and i thought it was a good one that if any attention i could take away from the people in the street, you know, put it on me, i could probably save my own life and save other people's in the process. >> unbelievable that nobody died in this, chris. there were people who were injured. he was shooting point blank at cars and holding a gun. explain to the viewers how he was holding the gun and hiding until the cars got right up on him. >> yeah. he was holding the gun kind of is methodically and mechanically, waiving it around. it looked like anything that was moving. you know you could see the red car go by, pop he shoots it. i'm screaming out anything i
can. i told him that he was an angel sent from god to kill me. i said that's what his mission was. i would stop at nothing to get his attention and get it towards me. luckily nobody died. i don't know if i could have done anything more. but i wasn't at any moment afraid of somehow being shot or killed or wounded. i was worried about the people on the street and i had a much better opportunity to avoid death from my vantage point. >> he did engage you in conversation, asking you for ammunition. did he ask you for another gun? he wanted you to call an ambulance and asking for more ammo. >> yeah. i told him to kill me. i said kill me. please kill me right now. i'm prepared to die. because i thought that if i could engage him and at the same time, you know, make him feel like i wanted to die and kind of take his power away from him. somebody in that situation they gain their power over people by, you know, they have a gun and
they can take your life at any moment. >> he never told you why he was doing it, right? >> no. we didn't get like really deep. i was just saying crazy things and i wanted his attention. he didn't shoot any round at me. some of the people in the building are matt like hey, why are you trying to get us shot. i said if we were near the windows looking we would have an opportunity to, he's turning our way and pointing the gun at us to get out of the way. >> when i spoke with an lapd sergeant earlier, she said he did do the right thing because he wasn't in harm's way and could have ducked at any time and probably did save lives. as information comes about the possible motive we'll share you. >> happened again. another youth sports leader is under fire accused of molesting boys a long time ago. th relieve coughs, sneezing, aches, fevers. tylenol: and i relieve nasal congestion.
nyquil (stuffy): overachiever. anncr vo: tylenol cold multi-symptom nighttime relieves nasal congestion... nyquil cold & flu doesn't. okay... uhh. the bad news, it's probably totaled. the good news is, you don't have to pay your deductible. with vanishing deductible from nationwide insurance, you got $100 off for every year of safe driving, so now your deductible is zero. the other good news ? i held on to your coffee. wow. ♪ nationwide is on your side ( laughing ) it's actually a pretty good day when you consider. that's great.
the amateur athletic union is responding tonight to shocking allegations that it's former president molested two boys in the '80s. espn broke the story today. robert dodd who is undergoing cancer treatment was immediately removed from his post. here's a statement from the interim president louis stout. >> i want to make it clear that bobby dodd is no longer president and executive director of the aau. the organization has no continuing contact with him. and he has no continuing association with the organization and its programs. finally, we are urging anyone in the aau community who has information about any incidents of inappropriate behavior or abuse to contact law enforcement and the aau.
>> tonight cnn george howell has the latest for us from memphis where these incidents took place when dodd was a sports director at a local ymca. george? >> reporter: memphis police confirm there's an active investigation into the former president and ceo of the amateur athletic union, robert bobby dodd. this investigation started after two men decided to confront dodd and share their stories on espn's "outside the line" claiming that dodd sexually abused them back in the 1980s when these men were teenagers. both say they decided to speak out, given the sexual abuse allegation that are playing out at syracuse university and penn state. now one of the men spoke anonymously to espn but one of the men, ralph west decided to speak on camera saying he was sexually abused at least six times back in the 1980s. just look at what he told "outside the lines." >> i was dead asleep. i don't remember anything but waking up and he's trying to put his hand in my boxer shorts.
and i jumped up straight out of bed and he's laying down there next to my bed. of course i was freaked out. >> how did he get in the room? >> he had a key. he always had somehow had a key to whatever room i was in. >> since the story broke, the aau contacted memphis police. an active investigation happening here. the aau brought on a new interim president and they say that dodd was planning to retire this month, saying he's currently fighting colon cancer. don. >> george, thank you very much for that. in just three days former penn state assistant football coach jerry sandusky will face his alleged victims in court for the first time. they are expected to testify at a preliminary hearing on tuesday, detailing their claims that sandusky sexually abused them when they were young. this week sandusky was arrested on 12 new counts of abuse involving two new alleged victims. former coach was released on
$250,000 bail. earlier i asked the defense attorney holly hughes why his bail wasn't set higher? >> the bail is to each individual crime so it's not as if you can say you're charged with 16 different murders and we'll give you 16 different bonds and increase them each time. the number is commensurate with the crime charged. >> sandusky is under house arrest and must wear an electronic monitoring defense. he's behind best selling books, movies and a church with 30,000 members. after the break, bishop t.d. jakes and i talk religion, sex scandals and what some call the war on christmas. nyquil:what? tissue box (whispering): he said nasal congestion... nyquil: i heard him. anncr vo: tylenol cold multi-symptom nighttime relieves nasal congestion... nyquil cold & flu doesn't.
bishop t.d. jakes is one of america's best-known pastors. his church, the potter house claims more than 30,000 victims. his media empire includes radio, television and film productions and numerous best-selling books. his latest "the relationship bible life lessons on relationships from the inspired word of god." earlier i got a chance to talk with bishop jakes and i started by asking him ant what seems like the annual debate of the so-called war on christmas. >> i think that people are trying to be so politically correct that we're afraid to say anything to each other and i think it's unfortunate. there are some groups of people who are an any any expression of christianity and have been and probably always be will. although that's disappointing that's what makes america great. that we have all of this diversity. >> bishop let's talk about these
child sex abuse scandals that we've been hearing so much about in state and syracuse and another one today. what is going on in our society, in our country when you hear about cover-ups and things like this? >> you know something, don. this has been going on for years and years and years. it's just that with social networking and 24 hour media cycles that we have today it has come to the surface in a way it has not done historically. one in six boys molested in this country before the age of 18 and one in four girls this is not a news story. these cases with penn state and syracuse and elsewhere are highlighted. they are important. my concern is most of the abuse we're seeing happening in this country is not highlighted. it's not with big celebrities or prestigious people. it's down in the trenches with nearly 50% of boys being molested in homes by people that they know. so i don't want us to demonize these people as the epitome of
evil at the expense of overlooking people in our communities, our neighbors and relatives who have access to our children. it's time for parents to take the sharp wake up call and build the kind of communication with their children so that we can really check to make sure that this is not happening not only at penn state where we need to snap it out but in our own neighborhoods and communities. >> have to ask you this, bishop. i have to ask you about bishop eddie long. you know him. i think you're friends with him, a fellow pastor. he leads a mega church here in atlanta. he settled several abuse and misconduct cases against him. his wife filed for divorce. your thoughts on that. first the misconduct allegations. >> well, i think if there was actually misconduct we have -- the young men involved -- and they are older men. i think it's a little different from a 10-year-old who can't speak for himself. when you get these older boys who can make decisions, old
enough to drive a car, old enough to go to war, if there is a deliberate action done here, we can't take a cash settlement when we really want justice done. because it leaves the public wondering what really happened. because of the judicial system that we have today, none of us are curious -- our curiosities are not resolved because the only people who really know what happened between the boys and bishop are the boys and bishop. perhaps we'll never know at this point. but we can use it as a talking point, to begin to deal with how we interact with leadership and how we interact with people and what our expectations are of people. and in that way i think it will do well. look, the most recent information that i have read is that bishop long has taken a sabbatical with his wife to rebuild his marriage and strengthen his relationship i read due to the pressure of all of the media. >> he said last sunday in church he's going to take some time off to deal with the issues with his family.
but his wife did file for divorce and she said she stands behind that. she said it was irreconciable differences, that there's no chance of getting back together. >> whenever i counsel any couple, don, i try to see them resolve things because at the end of the day, above our jobs, above our careers and everything else, i think family is really important. >> do you know how he's doing? >> i do not know. i do not know. i did know that he had decided to take a leave of absence until i read it. but i'm hoping that they're using it as a time to cut off the phone and the tv and really rebuild their relationship. for the people who are high profile like yourself, like me, him and others, it's very difficult to maintain a private life when you're living in a fish bowl all the time. sometimes you have to cut off the lights and put your priorities back into alignment. my prayer is that the longs will use this opportunity to get that done. my producer said i misspoke i said 30,000 victims, i meant 30,000 members. my apologies to the potter's house.
t.d. jakes book, "the relationship bible." thank you again, bishop t.d. jakes. from the presidential election to the economy to the occupy movement there's no shortage of opinions when it comes to politics but we found a voice and you probably never heard before and his rants are heating up the internet. straight ahead meet felonious monk. >> everybody who has a loan to the federal government [ bleep ] paying it. don't pay your bills because they ain't paying theirs.

anncr vo: tylenol cold multi-symptom nighttime relieves nasal congestion... nyquil cold & flu doesn't. let's talk politics now. the republican presidential hopefuls are debating in iowa tonight just 3 1/2 weeks before the iowa caucuses on january 3rd. earlier today newt gingrich's campaign tried to clarify a comment he made on the jewish cable network. he described the middle east peace process as delusional and referred to what he called an invented palestinian people. those remarks were condemned by a top palestinian official and the gingrich campaign later issued a statement that reads quote, gingrich supports a negotiated peace agreement between the israelis and
palestinians. however to understand what is being proposed and negotiated you have to understand decades of complex history. the return of gingrich revives public apension -- attention on the man who once served as speaker of the house. fredricka whitfield has a preview. >> don, newt gingrich is at the top of the political polls and the hunt for the 2012 republican presidential nomination. that means he's also the target of many attacks from the other contenders. he's accused of having three marriages and is accused of flip-flopping. he converted to catholicism a few years ago. tomorrow we'll take an in depth look at gingrich's faith. join us sunday in the cnn newsroom. >> thank you. we'll be watching. the 24 hour news cycle is full of analysts and commentators. so-called experts giving their two cents on everything from politics and sports to scandals and entertainment.
now i want you to listen to a new voice who is saying what i think a lot of people may be thinking. >> to the government. the united states government, yo, $14.6 trillion? all my credit cards would have been cut off. i'm just asking you to balance the [ bleep ] budget. that's all you got to do. we voted for you all because we were worried about gay rights, marijuana getting legalized. all these other things we were concerned about. how can we get roads, more money for schools. you can't balance a checkbook. this is something every american has to go through every week. we have to figure what we'll pay. what we need to pay off. >> he's a comedian, a writer and with millions of hits on his youtube channel an internet sensation. i talked with him earlier to get a fresh, new opinion on today's political climate. talk about the occupy movement and what do you make of it? >> it's unique in that i think it started -- i won't say unique but it started from something that every major movement starts from and that's people being displaced. people feeling broke, poor,
disenfranchised, marginalized and not having a voice. you step on someone long enough they will stand up. the difference is in every other movement even with your socialist movements which some people are calling this and your -- i don't know what the movement is about. >> you have to admit they are bringing knit caps back into fashion. >> they are. and i'm glad for that. it's cold. i wouldn't have had this baseball cap if i knew knit caps were going to be talked about. that's ghoul. -- that's cool. >> i made that joke because you're a comedian. you've been heady about these things. i want to see your comedic side. i'm going to give you some words and phrases and you tell me the first thing that comes to your mind. here we go. >> i don't know that you want to do that. >> president barack obama. >> what's up, b. >> rick perry.
>> nice hair. >> newt gingrich. >> nice jowls. >> mitt romney. >> i am gum bi, damn it. >> monk's web series stop it b has over 2 million youtube hits. they are inspiring people to do extraordinary things. cnn is honoring them. we're counting down. next you'll meet one of the finalists for hero the year. i'. but sometimes i wonder... what's left behind?

that's what mark mcdonald says. he's the ceo of venice nutrition. he's the author of a "new york times" best seller "body of confidence." here's here to explain. here's the book. right? i saw you on chelsea lately. all right. i started working with you. it actually works. eating more and i'm losing weight. how is that happening? >> you were so upset initially. you're in my office. it's not going to work. the only way you can lose weight is to suffer. that's how we think, but it just doesn't have to be that way. the way the body works the more your feed it the right food it loses body fat and actually makes you drop weight. so three simple things. you have to eat every three to four hours. you have to eat the right amount of fat, carbohydrates and protein. and a concern -- or a certain amount of calories. >> you have to eat every three to four hours. >> think of a baby. a baby feeds on breast milk every three to four hours. the first year of life that's all your body is meant to be
fed. we abandon that because of society. we move to eating three meals a day. every time you miss a meal, your body burns muscle which slows down your metabolism. makes you hungry going into that next meal and that's when you eat the donuts and fried chicken and things like that that spike your blood sugar. >> basically i would go all day without eating. i would eat sometimes in the morning and wouldn't eat until 8:00 at night because i'm busy and starving. most people do that. what you're doing is putting your body in starvation mode. some people try to restrict calories. >> what you were doing you were starving yourself and using exercise to counter it. then once you got too busy and you could. exercise as much, your nutrition was still bad and that's what made you gain weight. >> what about calorie restriction. most people go on a diet and say i'll eat 1,200, 1300 calorie as day.
